Track Name: Glad You're Here
The world it seems is burning down
and people are the worst
but pour us all another round
I'll sing another verse

When the evening sun goes down,
it's easy to forget
it's always coming back around
we ain't through singing yet

CHORUS:
I'm glad you're here
and I love you more than I can say
good people make it good to be alive
if you'll raise a glass we'll toast
to the ones that we love most
or to put another way:
I'm glad you're here

The depth of our compassion
can leave much to be desired
and people can be awful
when they're hungry, rich or tired

But they also can be beautiful
In ways you'd never know
and the worse your situation is
the further they will go

CHORUS

[instr.]

My child you inspire me
to be a better man
to try and meet uncertainty
with kindness if I can

But know that just you're being here
my life is better now
So ---- all of the problems
we can make it through some how

CHORUS
CHORUS
Track Name: Not As Many As Blue Cross
If I had a dollar
for everyone who died
because of the insurance
you know I'd have a lot of dollars
but not as many as Blue Cross
no, not as many as Blue Cross

And if I had a dime
for every time I had to call and complain
and tell them here's my address, here's my number, here's my name
you know I'd have a lot of dimes
but not as many as Blue Cross
no, not as many as Blue Cross

And the worst part is
I'd have kept it if I could
You know I would
You know I would

[instr]

If I had a stain on my soul
For every time I could have helped someone but I walked away
Don't you know that I'm ashamed to say
I'd have a few stains on my soul
But not as many as Blue Cross
No not as many as Blue Cross
Not as many as Blue Cross
Track Name: List of Enemies
I never thought that you were funny
Always knew that you were mean
But somehow I had hoped white people
Weren’t as racist as they seem
But before you share this country
You would rather burn it down

And I hear you keep a list of your enemies
Please add me now.

You’re a racist and a liar
You’re a rapist and a fool
You’re the archetypal bigot
and the segregated school
You’re the face of violent hatred now
The world around

And I hear you keep a list of your enemies
Please add me now.

There are many you have added
to your list along the trail
Anyone who isn’t white
And everyone who isn’t male
But I believe that there are rights
With which all people are endowed

And I hear you keep a list of your enemies
Please add me now.

I don’t care what you say is legal
Who or what you call a crime
There is a time for making choices
And we are in that time
I’ll be siding with whoever
You say ought be beaten down

And I hear you keep a list of your enemies
Please add me now

There’s a Nazi at your table
There’s a Klansman at the door
There’s an old familiar hatred
That we all have seen before
And if you think that you are better than that
Time to answer how

Or start making a list of your enemies
And please add me now
